Tata Starbucks meets 100% pay equity

The joint venture company has also announced that women now make up 29% of the company.

Tata Starbucks reported that it has met 100% pay equity for women and men in part of its commitment to gender equality.

With a goal to reach 40% gender diversity by 2022, the joint venture company between the American coffee giant and Tata Global Beverages has also announced that women now make up 29% of the company from 14% in 2014.

“By investing in our partners and fostering diversity across our organization, Tata Starbucks is able to reflect the demographics of the communities we serve across India,” Tata Starbucks CEO Navin Gurnaney said in a statement.

The coffee chain cites its diversity program “Brew of Balance,” which offers flexible employment options for women returning from maternity leave, including child-care assistance, family and sabbatical leave, and five-day work schedule.

Since Starbucks entered into a joint venture with Tata Global Beverages in 2012, Tata Starbucks has operated 167 stores across India.
